How often do you weigh parcels at home and then print out the postage so you can pop it in a post-box and avoid a lengthy queue at the post office? Now there’s an even easier way to pay for postage – in Sweden and Denmark at least, where customers can pay via SMS.
Once the customer sends an SMS to the postal service (with the charge showing up on their phone bill), they receive a unique code back which can be written on the parcel to confirm payment. It’s launching on April 1 in Denmark, with Sweden sometime after mid-year. [The Local]
